The German company BMW plans to gradually abandon the use of the diesel engine with four turbines.
In the engine range of the BMW fifth and seventh series and the SUVs X5, X6 and X7 today, there is a three-liter diesel “six” with four turbochargers – these cars are indicated by a label M50d. However, according to the publication Bimmer Today, pretty soon this motor will retire: the Bavarians intend to abandon it due to the fact that it is too complex and expensive to continue its production. Insiders at BMW say that in the summer of 2020 from a range of brands will disappear models M550d and M750d, and later production will take X5, X6 and X7 index M50d.
The engine, known as B57D30S0, first appeared in the model range of the Bavarian brand the 2016 model year. Diesel with four turbine develops 400 horsepower and provides both sedans and crossovers impressive dynamics with enviable efficiency. In the short term, BMW will not be a successor for that motor, however, other versions of the engine B57D30 with fewer turbines will remain available.
